Luciana Rondolini from Buenos Aires, brings us unique works of art, that in their aesthetic beauty, comment on the disposability of objects and the material culture in which we are consumed. Having graduated as a graphic designer from the National Institute of Arts, Luciana has attended impressive workshops with artists Hernan Marina, Fabian Burgos, Carlos Huffman and Elsa Soibelman. Besides solo shows and collective shows in Buenos Aires and Rosario, she was recently awarded a prize for her work as the most distinguished young artist by the Arteba Foundation in 2013. The bejeweled banana, commissioned to Luciana by a Brazilian buyer, encapsulates ideas of temporary material value vs. value given by people to objects. Luciana is interested in studying human behavior through relationships with material things, and uses her artwork to uncover the concept of identity.
